BONINGTON, Chris (1986) Climbing Everest, Nelson English Readers Library
José Ángel. Rivero, 2º Bachillerato EFL
Chris and his team attempt to climb the Everest. He relates their story and analyzes their efforts before getting to the summit of the mountain. When the Italians cancelled the expedition at the last moment, Chris and his teammates have to face numerous problems. They do a great job, in spite of the terrible weather, avalanches and rock falls.
What I liked the best was how well they organised everything and the marvellous relation they had with one another. This is really important it’s the oil that makes the team work, an essential thing in team work. It is really inspiring and that is why I would strongly recommend it to teenagers
